SMITH COLUMN: State women anticipate postseason

March 15, 2014


It takes quite a bit of time from the end of a women's conference tournament until Selection Monday.
That's what is facing the Mississippi State Bulldogs, but they don't mind the wait too much.
It has been over a week since MSU was eliminated in the Southeastern Conference Tournament by Florida on March 6.
After five days off, the Bulldogs resumed practice on Wednesday because they have done enough to keep their season going.
MSU coach Vic Schaefer felt the need to give his team some time to recover from a grueling SEC schedule.
The Bulldogs were a little rusty on the first two days back to work, but Schaefer said "that was to be expected," and they went a little longer on Friday and "got some things done."
It has been a good season for MSU in Schaefer's second season and the program has come a long way in a short amount of time.
During the 2012-13 campaign, the Bulldogs finished 13-17 overall and 5-11 in the SEC.
Even though MSU finished 5-11 in the league for the second-straight year, the overall record saw a dramatic turnaround at 19-13.
